Preventing thefts from motor vehicles

Thefts from cars are often due to valuables being left in plain sight or doors and windows being left unlocked.

Thefts can occur at any time, so it is important not to present an easy opportunity to thieves.  

In order to steal, thieves will smash a car window or break locks, and the cost of repairs may exceed the value of the stolen items.

Key Crime Prevention Tips

  • Remove all valuable items when you leave your car
  • Lock all doors and close all windows before leaving your car
  • Park your car in a well-lit and secure area

In the event of  theft

If your valuables have been stolen form your car, report the theft to police.
